MSc Computer Science was started in 2004 with an intake of 12 students and had an increase of 8 later. The department has a proud history of 35 ranks altogether during these years. Many of our students are placed in several reputed institutions as well as MNCs by keeping the glory of St.Mary’s to the heights. Five of our students cleared UGC NET exam.
